Santa Monica Poolside Glamour
Throughout the 1930s, film star Marion Davies entertained Hollywood’s elite in the 110-room oceanfront mansion built for her by media magnate William Randolph Hearst. Since 2009, the public has been able to enjoy the features of the estate that were rehabilitated by the Annenberg Foundation and the city of Santa Monica—most notably the ornate swimming pool, with its restored tile trim and marble deck. Pool admission: adults $10, youth (age 1 to 17 years) $4, seniors $5, families of four (two adults, two youth) $24, 415 Pacific Coast Hwy., Santa Monica, (310) 458-4904. This appeared in the March/April 2012 issue.
